i'm having a hard time finding any concrete answers to this particular question ...

we have a mixture of sles9/10 hosts and are about to commission a bunch more sles10. we previously used a you server to buildout all the v9 hosts. we'd like to move everything possible to zlm and are trying to determine exactly how much storage we should expect to need. we'll be using mostly amd64 platform but there will be a small number of i686 systems as well.

where can i find documentation, calculations, whatever that will help me determine how much storage would be needed for zlm? we attempted deployment some time back and, if memory serves correctly, we were unable to specify to only mirror the platforms we used. seems like we ended up pulling down updates and such for platforms we would never have in-house.

any relevant information will be gratefully accepted.
